If I find one on craigslist.. Maybe! A new detroit locker won't be in the cards for a while!

I can't wait to get back to work on it.. It's been FAR TOO LONG!

Anyway, I finally got the ugly duckling to its new home here @ my new job :cheers:

And of course, here are a few pics







New resting spot!

That's a good question!

First step is to find time to work on it! Next, get the timing case welded up.

After that, figure out which injectors I really have, install the OFV valve then the cylinder head.

I wanna drive this truck so bad. Been daily driving my Toyota pickups (22RE's) for 5 years... It'll be sweet to have more than 75hp/90tq!!!

I hear ya about driving something different. I drove my TJ for 8 years as a DD and when I went to my Dodge it was really a nice change, fun to drive.

By looking at these injectors (and using your experience), have these been drilled out/modified/made larger???

The part number on the nozzle is DSLA 145 P 477 which google states is the stock 215hp injector.

The reason why I took the injectors apart was to clean and inspect them.

The P.O. said they are custom 420 injectors.. I wanted to see for myself. For the record, I never believed that.

What say you???

Cell phone pics bring the suck.

If you have the ability to fab your own piping compounds is MUCH cheaper than a larger single turbo.

I will have almost less than $500 in my twins by the time I fab up all the piping.

I'm trying to keep my eyes OFF the classifieds! It's a terrible thing


By looking at the pictures, two people on CompD said the injector pin holes looked larger than stock. One of them mentioned a pin gauge should be used to measure the holes..

But I agree with snedge
Know of a local place to buy a pin gauge set rather than ordering one?

Would having a local measuring/instrument place measure them be a better idea?

Got just a little more work done. In the process, I noticed more cracks on the timing case/housing. They're all part of that large crack I showed you guys earlier.. Killer Dowel Pin..

I'm starting to think hard about what color I want this pig. It needs paint and body work so bad.

Here are the pics!









To avoid having to salvage the old OEM bumper or finding one in better condition, I may turn the existing brush guard into a full on bumper replacement. Of course it would need a couple hundred more pounds of steel We'll see!

Are you going to paint it yourself or find someone on Craigslist to paint it?

Man it feels good to laugh out loud!! I needed that!

All good questions!! I can't answer that yet!! I still half way want to make it into a dually. As time goes by, I think harder and harder about what color I want it. Still undecided!!

They look a lot better than my 4BTA walls at "100k". Used, who knows how many miles were actually on it I would run it, no questions.

I've definitely heard that before!

Gonna pull the cam Monday to remove the timing case... Hope to have it welded up within a few days... Sure hope it doesn't warp!

Lol.. Yeah, cow catchers come in handy when you need something to stand on while replacing the fuel filter. More seriously.. They make you feel safer when you're driving through the Texas hill country where deer stand on the side of the road waiting for you to drive by

I think I want to make it into a full on bumper replacement since my oem bumper looks like, well, the rest of the truck!
